Tourounagashi and Big Fireworks Festival (とうろう流しと大花火大会)
A Bon festival tradition in the city of Tsuruga, this huge event, held at the Place of Scenic Beauty-designated Kehi no Matsubara, is known as one of the largest fireworks displays conducted along the Sea of Japan. Against the soft light cast by some 6,000 red, blue and yellow toro lanterns floating on the surface of the sea, over 10,000 fireworks are launched into the night sky in spectacular fashion. The scene created by the festival stalls, lanterns floating on the sea, and fireworks bursting overhead is magical and well-worth seeing.

Northeast of Kyoto, the ancient Tojinbo Cliffs separate Fukui prefecture from the Sea of Japan in a stretch of land well worth exploring. Water sports and seaside delicacies are available in abundance as the spectacular rugged coastline flattens down into beaches to the west of the prefecture, while inland, Fukui is home to Zen Buddhist temples and historic ruins.
